"not entirely unabridged"
I have always enjoyed this book whenever I read it. I purchase unabridged versions of books when I get them in audio format whenever possible. I definitely enjoyed the presentation, but was a bit disappointed to find that quite a bit had been left out. I realize the portions that were left out weren't really essential to the performance or story, especially if the listener hadn't read it before, but to someone who has probably read it a few dozen times at least, it left the over all story feeling a bit disjointed and more like a collection of related short stories. over all, still an enjoyable listen.
"if you only try one of these, this is it"
After Leonard Nemoy died recently, I wanted to look back to a favorite character from childhood. These dramatizations seem to be a format for 90-minute cassettes, hince 2 45-minute chapters. Knowing they are vintage, the sound affects and voice characterizations are actually fun. The story of this one is a quilt of several stories. Each of the characters describes his experience taking the Kobayashi Maru test. I liked Leonard's autobiography, too. He is missed and remembered.
The stories inside the story format. The different approaches to the test each of the characters took, defining their style.
He is surprisingly one of the best of the original cast doing these voice characterizations.
Ask JJ Abrahms :)
These Star Trek shorts are overpriced and should be more affordable and popular. Maybe bind 5 of them for one credit, similar to the History Channel sets.
